Yankees can't silence Jays' bats in 8-5 loss

The Jays are off to a successful 12-6 start on the young season but keep tinkering with the roster having already added outfielder Teoscar Hernandez from the minor league ranks last week. He also saw his average four-seam fastball velocity drop to 91.4 miles per hour, lower than in any of his previous three starts this season.

Cessa, who was set to take Sabathia's turn in the rotation until the rain in Detroit, suffered his oblique injury while pitching in Tuesday night's loss to the Marlins.

On Thursday, Sanchez's first passed ball brought in Toronto's first run in the third inning, but it occurred when Yankees starting pitcher CC Sabathia threw a high cutter after missing the sign for a slider.

A 3.6-magnitude quake has hit the community of Amherstburg, more than 20 kilometres south of downtown Windsor . For the third time in seven days, a small quake registered near South Hutchinson in Reno County.

With shutdown relief from Chad Green and a promising hitless inning from Dellin Betances, the score would remain the same until a 7th inning solo shot from Aaron Judge (5) would extend the Yankee lead to two. Didi Gregorius will bat third while Gary Sanchez follows Stanton in the five hole. He moves to 2-1 with a 5.32 ERA and 1.36 WHIP. He was 1 for 3 with a walk and is 4 for 38 with 20 strikeouts at Yankee Stadium this season.

But the actual concern for the Yankees centers on Gray, who was likely to function as the No. 3 starter guiding Luis Severino along with Masahiro Tanaka. The 31-year old first baseman has not been productive since that series, and he is now hitting.235 with two homers and 12 RBI's on the season.

Following up his clunker of a performance in a 6-3 loss to Boston last week, Sonny Gray was tagged for five earned runs over 3.1 innings to bloat his four-start ERA to 8.27. Justin Smoak is 1 for 4 against Montgomery, while Josh Donaldson is 0 for 2, and Kevin Pillar is 1 for 3. His walk rate of 6.0 per nine innings is almost double the career-high of 3.2 he posted last season. It is obvious that the fans are frustrated with Stanton's early season struggles, as they have booed him on multiple occasions while at home. The team has been unable to secure a shutout, placing them tied for dead last in the league.

5-0 in their last 5 games against a team with a winning record. Toronto is 9-4 in Stroman's last 13 starts against NY.

Stanton has started eight games in left and seven as the DH.

Livestream the Toronto Blue Jays, including Blue Jays Central pre-game. The Blue Jays have been productive against left-handers this season, ranking third in the Majors with 106 runs scored, and they have scored at least five runs in four out of their last five games, so I am confident they can get to Montgomery. He is 1-1 through three starts and has a 4.24 ERA with a 1.29 WHIP. The Yankees are posting 5.53 runs per game this season, but allowing 5.29 per contest. Toronto's offense is one of the hottest in the Majors right now, and the over has hit in eight of Montgomery's last 10 starts overall.
